  • Testimonial: As You Like It

    I directed David as Jacques in As You Like it for the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival. First of all David was an excellent company member – always smiling, positive, well prepared and relaxed. The part of Jacques is tough one to play. From day one David worked hard to get beneath the surface of the character and to make sense of the lines. He made strong decisions and every time he entered the stage he brought with him an excellent, strong, focused energy that took the scene somewhere new. He handled the verse very well. David worked exceptionally hard to keep his performance fresh every night, in the sections where he was in major he was always developing and exploring his performance, and so many wonderful moments were discovered. During this process David always listened to, respected, and took on board my opinion of what worked and (very occasionally) what didn’t. During sections where other actors depended on David supporting them he always hit his marks. What emerged was a wonderful performance that captured the spirit of Jacques and the play, and I would love to work with David again.
